Revisiting Nonprofit Metrics – TANGO TRENDS interview with Dr. Sam Coy

Jack Horak
Director of Nonprofit Education & Consulting

Earlier this year, I published an article that summarizes and discusses a Chapter of Stanford University Press’s newly published book, The Nonprofit Sector: A Research Handbook. You can read the article in the publication Inside Charity.

In specific, I addressed Chapter 16 – The Outcomes Movement in Philanthropy and the Nonprofit Sector, written by Paul Brest, the former President of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Dean of Stanford Law School. Readers not familiar with the term “outcomes” may recognize synonyms, and related terms, such as venture philanthropy, impact investing, logic models, theories of change, social rate of return, and others.

The TANGO Nonprofit Method by Jack Horak - guidebook for nonprofit organization successI believe that the outcomes movement is one of the most important developments in the philanthropic sector, and I am returning to it in this issue of TANGO Trends to introduce Dr. Sam Coy to our members.  She is a member of TANGO’s Above the Fold consulting panel, and the outcomes movement is the area of her research, practice, and expertise.

Please watch the video of the conversation Sam and I had earlier this month. I urge TANGO members to think about contacting her if this is an area in which they need assistance or about which they have questions.
